Dragonflies and crocodiles



We have just got back from some
Quality time away. The town of Dragonflies and crocodiles . Sunsets and Barramundi .

We were hanging out in Darwin with Harry’s new cousin Pearl who was born 8 weeks ago. It was just Harry and I on vacation and I couldn’t have a better traveling companion.
Following in the footsteps of eldest sister Tess Harry fell asleep on the plane just before take off. For 2 hours he slept and then spent the remainder of the flight playing open the window shutter , close the window shutter. A tad boring for me and my arm, but it passed the time adequately .

A change of temperature from chilly Melbourne 10 degrees to a gorgeous 29 degrees , has meant I have had to disband the bonnets and rely on tape to keep the magnets on. It seems he is more tolerant with age although I cringe everytime I have to pull off the tape as I feel his pain when the hairs are ripped from his head with the tape before each sleep.

With time to focus on just Harry he seems to have made a mountain of progress on this trip.

Small things like a new floor surface to crawl on that is less slippery, a great dog to chase around the room and a retro 60’s sofa with cushions in a perfect wedge for climbing have brought Harry’s physical development on leaps and bounds.

We also had time to listen to new environmental sounds . Listen to the chorus of birds in the morning . Listen to the rumble of a real 4WD. Listen to a didgeridoo at the local markets. Listen to the sound of an ice cold beer being gulped down by mum whilst he eat dinner.

It was a fab trip and a joy to slow down our hectic pace of a family of 5 to just focus on Harry at his pace.
